People Share The Weirdest Things They’ve Done Because Of Social Anxiety

Ah, when anxiety forces you to do things you don’t even want to do:

Was at a picnic with some friends 10-15 people, turned into like 50-75 people within a hour. Enter extreme anxiety. Went up to grill to get hot dog. Cute girl walks behind me to get one, notice and start sweating. Barbecue homie hands me my hot dog, so nervous I drop it right onto the cement. Didn’t know to get another one so picked it up with dirt all over it, took a bite, and walked away.

Added bonus: a bush I’m really allergic too was near by so the next week I had an allergic reaction all over my body from it.

Good times with my pal social anxiety.

Being around someone attractive can make you forget how bodies work:

Walks past a cute girl

Starts walking manually

Bravo at your commitment, Scoutregister!

I was picking up my little sister from school, and I didn’t have anything better to do and I didn’t want her to have to wait on the long Carline, so I got there 40 minutes early. About five minutes before school let out, she told me she was going home with a friend. I was so scared that the people behind me in line would think I was creepy if I jus left the line after all that time, so I pretended to be on the phone, got out of my car and rummaged through my trunk while acting like I was angry at the person on the other end of the call, complete with annoyed arm movements and all, then got back in and drove off

Well, was it benign_turtle?

Asked a customer if her name was
